STASIS by Kim FieldingStasis by Kim Fielding
Series: Ennek Trilogy #1
Published by DSP Publications Genres: Fantasy, MM

The city-state of Praesidium is considered one of the most powerful and profitable in all the known lands.  Their success is in large part due to strict laws and rules which the Chief and the wizard carry out.  The current Chief is a no nonsense, rigid widower with two sons, his heir Larkin and Ennek, the spare.  Thelius is their powerful, secretive wizard.  Law breakers become bond-slaves, the more heinous criminals are sent into Stasis, a deathlike state.

 

For the most part once Ennek completed his studies he was left to his own devices, especially after his mother’s suicide.  As a young man Ennek spent most of his time drinking and gambling.  Well aware that relations between men is strictly forbidden he’s chosen to forgo any relationship altogether.

 

Ennek finally finds purpose in life when Larkin assigns him the responsibility of Portmaster for their city-state.  His days are filled with business rather than trouble.  At last Ennek has a worthy purpose.  The only difficulty in his life is the dreams of Stasis he cannot control.  Less than a handful of times Ennek has witnessed those in Stasis.  One in particular stands out to him, the prisoner has even opened his eyes and moved which should be impossible.  His decision to retrieve the prisoner has repercussions that cost Ennek more than he can spare.  His soul and that of the prisoner Miner.  All will be required of them both in the end.

 

Author Kim Fielding lays the foundation for a fantastical alternative world that alternates with wonder and chills.  Ennek’s story rings with conviction whether he’s a wastrel or a hero.  Stasis thoroughly entertains.  This reality comes alive, between Ennek and the other characters, as well as the rich, descriptive storyline Stasis literally breathes itself into the pages.  There is an overwhelming sense of tension, angst, and the spirit to succeed in Stasis.  Absolutely riveting.  But beware, there is a cliffhanger.

The town of Zidar prides itself on following many time honored traditions in a place where Christians and Muslims are able to live in relative peace. One such tradition concerns punishment at the town pillar.  Those found guilty are whipped and left for dead.  If they survive the ordeal the matter is over.  In the case of a slave being punished at the pillar, they are freed if they survive.

 

Years ago Faris was flogged for thievery and left to die at the pillar.  The healer cut him down, took him home and saved his life though Faris would always bear severe scars.  The elderly healer sees something in the orphaned thief and gives him the chance nobody else ever had.  Over time Faris learns everything his mentor can teach him about herbs and healing.  After his beloved mentor passed Faris becomes the town healer and follows the tradition of releasing those sentenced to the pillar.

 

Faris swore he wouldn’t continue the tradition after what happened the last time, but there he was on that cold, wet night cutting down the large, badly injured man with the obvious scars of wearing a slave collar.  It does take all of Faris’s formidable skills to save Boro from the flogging, as well as injuries and starvation caused by his previous master.  Once on the road to recovery the lonely healer discovers a kindred spirit in the arms of Boro, a captured soldier turned slave.  As Faris and Boro begin to accept the gift of finding each other, though under harsh circumstances, the ex-slave’s old master comes calling.  And guess what he wants back…

 

A simple tale gathers strength and evolves into a moral, honest romance in The Pillar.  Author Kim Fielding paints a moody, introspective story of redemption and love for readers to embrace.  Faris is a man of many layers, a complex man who saves Boro which saves them both in the end.  Enjoy The Pillar, a complicated, fascinating story that proves the power of love on so many levels.
